And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

我 們 曉 得 萬 事 都 互 相 效 力 、 叫 愛   神 的 人 得 益 處 、 就 是 按 他 旨 意 被 召 的 人 。

God works out all things – not just isolated incidents – for our good. This does not mean that all that happens to us is good. Evil is prevalent in our fallen world, but God is able to turn it around for our long-range good. Note that God is not working to make us happy, but to fulfill his purpose.

Bible verse: Romans 8:28
